Derrick Walker My story

First post: Dec 14, 2017
In a nutshell, I was hit by a distracted driver who tried to beat the light. The investigation into the accident was bungled, and somehow the person who hit me while talking on the phone and in an attempt to beat the light got paid 25 thousand dollars. Yet I was found 0% at fault.
My car was totaled and my head knocked the drivers side window out of the car, my brain MRI imaging report came back "OK no traumatic injuries" yet I felt pain, I noticed that all my imaging reports said the same thing, yet I was in pain and you can still to this day see some of the damage. I asked for the CD which came with the imaging and even though I'm not a doctor, you can tell the left side doesnt match the right and it looks like damage to me in the exact spots I mentioned, after-all my head knocked the drivers side window out of the car.
I have been forced to relocate to get an accurate picture of my injuries so that I can start to recover and heal. The money will be used to cover cost of living for 3-4 months at which I will have an accurate picture of my injuries and be able to deal with the insurance company.
I don't know why this was done, and I'm not focused on it anymore, I'm in pain and have fought to get this far. This is the last hurdle. 
Another thing, never let anyone talk you out of your common sense, it is your last line of prevention and in my case saved my life. When the doctor is telling you that you are fine but you are feeling things that as an athelete you have never felt, its on you if you let them trick you, don't take it personal though. I guess its part of the "healthcare" game.
